Tips to keep your legal fees down

Taylor & Taylor Law Corporation Langley and Surrey Lawyers

Here are some tips to help reduce your legal fees and help your file run smoothly.

Write effective emails

  • Organize your questions or answers into bulleted or numbered lists.
  • Attach any documents that you refer to in the email.
  • Don’t use high importance flags unless there is urgency or a deadline. Asking your lawyer to prioritize your file may result in a higher legal fee.

Come to meetings prepared

  • Bring your documents organized by date and type. If you don’t know what to bring, email your lawyer to ask what they need.
  • Prepare your questions beforehand. Tell the lawyer your key concerns at the beginning of the meeting. This will help keep everyone on point.
  • Be forthcoming at the meeting. Answer questions frankly and include as much detail as possible—even if you think something is irrelevant or harmful to your case. That information may have legal significance.

Be responsive

  • If your lawyer emails or calls you, try your best to respond promptly. Legal bills can add up quickly if your lawyer has to spend extra time trying to reach you.

These tips should help you manage your relationship with your lawyer. Remember, the more help you can provide as a client, the easier it will be for your lawyer to help you.
